What I need to participate?[edit]

  • Be willing to go to various lifestyle accounts (record/used record stores, concert venues, coffee shops, restaurants, skate-shops, Laundromats, University campuses, bars (if of age), clothing stores, and anywhere else you can to promote The Spine, to distribute/hang up promo materials.
  • After you advertise The Spine in all these places around your city, you must be able to email me a "report" or summary every week or every two weeks, letting me know where you went, and any feedback you received.

(The Johns would love to know where their faces are being posted nationwide, so this is super important, and will make our work all worthwhile!)

IF you can satisfy all these requirements, then we'd love to have you involved in Phase 2!
